AAPL went partway with the AppleTV, but they did not finish the deal. The AppleTV could easily be the hub of the house, but the fact that you have to find the bloody remote to use it as a hub completely kills it. If they had added the voice capabilities to the AppleTV, they would not be able to keep them in stock anywhere.

I just got an Apple TV 4K. I don’t know what gives with its voice control, but it hasn’t correctly understood a single word I’ve said to it. That while Siri on my phone has no such trouble. My Samsung TV also works fine with voice commands. So there’s something broken with the Apple TV voice.

Anyway, I think the remote for the Apple TV is a disaster, so I’m happy my TV remote is smart enough that I can use it instead for selection and input. I might have had to return the Apple TV otherwise, the remote being an eternal source of frustration.
